Kandi Burruss Talks About New Xscape Reality Show On Bravo After Nearly Quitting Housewives
We knew things got pretty bad for Kandi this past season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” but we never knew she considered quitting the show. This weekend in NYC Kandi was honored with a Fortune Insider Award by Marcus Damas, CEO of Fueled by Culture.
Burruss spoke with US Weekly about her rough season while she was in New York:
“During season 9, I was feeling like I might want to leave because there was so much hate from fans online and I was having trouble because, how do you defend yourself from a lie?” Burruss said. “How do you defend yourself from something that never happened?”
“I’ve never had drama like that that lasted the whole season. It was very sh–ty,” the Old Lady Gang restaurant owner said. “But now I’m extremely happy that people were able to see the truth. Sometimes I thought people would never know the truth and it would have been a stain on me forever.”
They say the truth will set you free and it definitely did in Kandi’s case. And after a pretty rough season, things are looking up, as Kandi continues to build on her empire. Business has been booming at her Atlanta family owned restaurant “Old Lady Gang” and people can’t stop talking about the Xscape reunion.
